Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Cardiff Blues

There's one last Leinster game left before the start of the Six Nations. So it's probably a good time to reflect where Leinster and indeed Ireland are at since they are largely the same group of players.

Leinster have won all sixteen games so far this season. In Europe they had a perfect record of 20 points from 20 which earned them top seeds and means they won't have to leave Dublin in the knock-out stages. And they have done this with a lengthy injury record that has seen them do without key men like Johnny Sexton, Tadhg Furlong, Jason Jenkins, Robbie Henshaw and James Lowe for most of the European campaign.

It's time for the traditional Christmas Aviva game!!! In January!

To be fair, Gloucester at home in December would have been a hard sell and it would have been especially grim watching Leinster take on their B side in a half empty stadium. So it was understandable that Leinster plumped for the Racing game in the Aviva even if it meant losing the pre-Christmas crowd.

Leinster are back in European action this week and they face an awkward trip to the South West of England.

Last week Leinster had some good preparation in a properly tough match. The Ospreys largely laid waste to the Leinster scrum and made their life a misery at the breakdown with the ageless Justin Tipuric giving a masterclass.

Happy new year!

Last week's game was a decent enough contest where Connacht put it up to Leinster in the first half before the home team pulled away comfortably in the end.

Leinster kick off the new year looking to make it six wins from six in interprovincial derbies this season.

On Stephen's Day an understrength Leinster team managed to scrape a win over Munster in Limerick. It was an odd game which felt like an endless stream of breakdown penalties.
